MOSCOW, July 20. /TASS/. Crimean Prosecutor Natalya Poklonskaya is likely to become a candidate from the United Russia party at the elections to the lower house of Russia’s parliament in 2016, the party leadership told the Izvestia daily on Monday. Sources close to the presidential administration, the publication says, have confirmed that "such a possibility is being considered."
The United Russia leadership told Izvestia that the party is "working in a non-stop regime both on regional and federal elections."
"The party is relying on strong candidates, authoritative personalities. The work on the upcoming elections to the State Duma is already underway," the Izvestia source said. "Of course, we consider the people who will be of benefit both to the party and Russia, as, for example, Natalya Poklonskaya. The dialogue on the formation of the [party’s election] list in Crimea is being conducted."
The newspaper could not immediately reach Poklonskaya for a comment.
